Why Visit Gulf Shores, Alabama
The South has a long culinary tradition that sets it apart from the rest of the country – come here once and you’ll always have a hankering for our southern comfort foods! Combine that with the bounty of the Gulf, and you’ll discover a culinary culture that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
Head down Gulf Shores Parkway towards the beach and you’ll see seafood restaurants all around you. While there are many great restaurants on the beach and off, a few of our favorites include: Mikee’s Seafood, DeSoto’s Seafood Kitchen, and The Steamer Baked Oyster Bar.
Wide Variety of Water Activities
If you’re more hands-on when it comes to your food, why not catch it yourself, and cook it in the fully stocked kitchen of your own Gulf Shores vacation rental? Select a spot on the dock and cast away. Or go for some deeper dwellers by chartering a fishing boat with crews like Alabama Fun Fishing Charters and Lost Key Charters.
Of course, the sea offers so much more to do than fish! Whether on the water, below the water, or above the water, there’s tons of ways to have fun. We recommend you rent a kayak, take out a paddleboard, or head underwater and go scuba diving.
For those that are looking for a more laid-back getaway, bring your beach chair down to the shore of our sugar-white sand beach and read your book with your toes wiggling in the surf. Cool off from time to time with a quick dip in our clear blue water.
Many of our beach house rentals have private swimming pools so the water activities can continue from your rental, too!
Great Access to Nature
Believe it or not, the beauty of the Gulf Shores extends beyond our ocean views. We also have some beautiful hiking in Gulf Shores, with a surprising variety of landscapes. Gulf State Park boasts miles of gorgeous public beaches. The Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trails let you witness yourself the phenomenal blending of land, water, and plants observable only in freshwater marshes.
And if you’ve never been to the South before, you might be amazed at the sheer variety of birds that live here. So many birds make their winter homes here, you may catch glimpses of species you’ve never heard of! If avians amaze you, make sure to try out the birding trails!
